This is your chance to draw on your childhood memories, as well as your experience as a parent/teacher, to develop ideas for publishable children's books. Learn about the different forms and genres of children's books (picture books, easy readers, chapter books, middle-grade novels or young adult novels) to determine which is best for your idea and your audience. We will brainstorm ideas and acquire techniques for plotting, character development, effective use of point of view, and the all-important process of revision. You will also have opportunities to have your work-in-progress critiqued by the instructor and the class. Please bring paper and writing utensil to class.

Get over your fear of grant writing with advice from an expert! You will learn the skills needed to write a successful grant: identifying fundable projects, researching possible funders, making the case for a new project, compiling support data and building a budget. In the process, students will select and interview staff at a local nonprofit, making connections to develop a network. We'll study similar example grants, explore funder priorities and trends in the field, and workshop our own drafts. You can come with an organization in mind or instructor will have ideas.
